Culver City Electronic Waste Roundup Saturday

Dispose of your old electronics at Culver Palms United Methodist Church between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Sat. Oct. 20.

Unsure of what to do with old computer monitors, copiers, fax machines, televisions and other items?

Drop them off at Culver City’s electronic waste roundup this Saturday, where they will either be recycled or disposed of safely.

 According to a Culver City Public Works Environmental Programs and Operations statement, most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered and used again. In addition, some electronic products contain enough levels of certain materials that render them hazardous and unacceptable for municipal trash disposal. California law designates waste televisions and monitors as hazardous.

As such, Culver City Public Works Environmental Programs and Operations will hold its e-waste roundup at Culver Palms United Methodist Church’s front parking lot – 4464 Sepulveda Blvd. - on Sat. Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Below is a list of the items that can be dropped off:

Monitors and Televisions                    VCR’s                   Computers                          Printers
Scanners DVD Players                       CD Players            Stereos                                Hard Drives
Laptops                                              Batteries                Cellular Phones                    Phone Systems
Fax Machines
